I fielded a query from a client today.  His building company is buying stone, originally from Portugal, from an importer.


My clients is a limited company.  The sole shareholders and directors are husband and wife, the shareholdings being held 50/50


New company just commenced trading, no PAYE registration, 2 directors (non-spouses, non civil partners)

Director #1 was employed until May 2014, and has a P45.


I have a client who is a sole director.  He has purchased a unique mobile number that he uses for the business only and an apple iphone.  He bought these personally and then claimed the cost back f


How can I set direct debit for the clients where the clients sign the DD mandate and I can collect the monthly payments from them?


‘Relationology’ recognises the importance of relationships in a client’s buying decision, says Matt Bird.


I have a client who operates a workshop within a company limited by guarantee. They act as not for profit and never take any further funds out of the company, it's all invested back into the club.

I have a Client who subscribed for £70k share capital in a UK trading Company (unquoted) which was dissolved in September 2014.
